The Spiders from Mars!

Inspired by David Bowie (duh), I created this drawing for Gallerie 13's Halloween Group Art Show next month! The reception will be held on Friday, October 2nd, with all the usual First Friday wonderful things- free food and wine and live music!

Speaking of music, you can listen to the Spiders from Mars and Ziggy, too by clicking this link!

Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly
The spiders from Mars. He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band

Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by smiling
He could leave 'em to hang
Came on so loaded man, well hung and snow white tan.

So where were the spiders while the fly tried to break our balls
Just the beer light to guide us,
So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz
With God given ass
He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar

Making love with his ego Ziggy sucked up into his mind
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.

Oh yeah
Ziggy played guitaarrrrrr
